Latest Epic Games Store Giveaway
« on: December 24, 2018, 01:30 AM »
Epic Games recently launched their own digital games store, bringing more competition to similar services such as Steam and GOG.

They're currently running a promotion where they are giving away one game every two weeks. From now until December 27th, 2018, they're giving away Subnautica, and from Dec 28 2018 until Jan 10 2019 they'll be giving away Super Meat Boy.

The games must be claimed using the Epic Games store/launcher: https://www.epicgames.com/

I haven't been very good about keeping this thread up to date.

The current giveaway is Slime Rancher through March 21.



I've been playing it quite a bit. It's a whimsical, low-stress game. :Thmbsup:

I'd not been remembering.  Too many platforms to remember them all.  Despite the free games, I just don't feel the impetus to visit this one.

I mostly agree with you. To this day I still have never installed the EA store, whatever that's called. And over the past couple of years I've even mostly stopped buying from Steam and preferring the DRM-free offerings at GOG. But I already had Epic Games Launcher (now Epic Games Store) installed because someone gifted me a copy of Fortnite (the co-op Save the World campaign) for Christmas in 2017. And I've had Slime Rancher on my wish list on GOG for a while so when it was free on the Epic Store I decided this was my chance to try it out, and I'm glad I did because I like it.

It's funny to see what platforms people use and don't.  I think I have all of them installed, but the only ones I keep running are Steam and Itch.  I get stuff off of GoG, but it just doesn't in general have everything that I use/want to play.  I use origin and uplay for that same reason- they have stuff that I want to play.  Epic, not so much.
